    Inattention led to plane's door opening in flight - report:confused:

    A plane's cargo door opened shortly after takeoff from Auckland because crew were distracted and procedures were not followed, an investigation has found.

    A Transport Accident Investigation Commission (TAIC) report, released today, said the lessons from the April 9, 2010, incident were relevant to all pilots and they needed to ensure all checklists and safety procedures were followed.

    The incident happened on a scheduled flight from Auckland to Whangarei. The plane, a Beechcraft 1900D, was operated by Eagle Airways and there were 10 passengers and two pilots aboard.
